Lecture Series: Dr. Richard Nippes - History of Ocean View @ Hall's Store

Dr. Richard Nippes, original founder of the Ocean View Historical Society, will provide a wonderful talk on the history of the village of Ocean View, starting in 1688 with the first land grant, the relationship between the Indians and early settlers in Ocean View, the importance of education, religion, and law and order to its forefathers, whether the town legitimately offered an ‘ocean view’ when it was named, the origins of the Ocean View Historical Society, and some humorous tidbits from Dr. Nippes’ research. We are guessing that many will walk away from his talk having learned something about our beloved area that you had not known previously.

This event will also serve as a celebration of our new Hall’s Store building and a return to normalcy post-pandemic. Light refreshments will be served, admission is free, and donations will be accepted. Seating is limited to 80.
